Arjun Group Commercial is a competition entry for a large scale building accommodating offices and retail spaces, in Ghatlodiya, Ahmedabad. The proposal has a simple layout such as to occupy as much built space as allowed.
The focus of the design instead is on differentiating the two major parts of the program through materiality. The retail spaces are conceived as a heavy base to the building with a masonry facade, while the offices have a lighter wooden one. This wooden facade is a dynamic one, which also becomes a sun shading device for the offices to control individually. This individual control gives the building an everchanging look throughout the day.
